I guess that helps.
But let's talk about that recipe. It's from a beat up copy of The Junior League's Presenting Boston, first issued in 1976. It's tried and true (times 25 years) and is quite frankly, my favorite muffin recipe of all time. I love a good no-nonsense, "put everything in a bowl" recipe.
(adapted slightly from Presenting Boston...A Cookbook)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour (+ more for the berries)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
Beat the egg, then add the milk and oil. Blend in the dry ingredients and stir until only just moistened. The batter will be lumpy. Sprinkle more flour on top of the berries before adding them to the batter. Gently fold them in. Fill paper muffin cups about 3/4 full and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.) Makes about 10 muffins.
How to get your muffins full of berries every time, and not sunken to the bottom? Just sprinkle and toss some flour on the berries before mixing with the batter. And then applaud yourself for being so domestic.
I'm off on a ferry boat this evening to gorgeous Martha's Vineyard! I'll be with two friends who crack me up, so expect a hilarious recap on Monday. Buon weekend, amici!
